March 22, 2009 Obituary in L.A. Times:
Timothy Michael Doheny passed away peacefully at his home on March 18th after a valiant struggle against cancer. He was preceded in death by his brothers Larry and Bill and by his first wife Elizabeth. Tim is survived by his devoted wife of almost 29 years, Topsy, his children Dru, Mike and Dennis, and by five grandchildren. Tim was born in Los Angeles on April 5, 1926. In 1943, at the age of seventeen, anxious to join his three older brothers in the Navy, he convinced his mother to allow him to enlist, and spent the war years on a destroyer. His mother's last words to him upon leaving were, "And don't you dare get a tattoo," which he promptly did at the first port of call. After the war he attended Cal Poly San Luis Obispo majoring in Agriculture. He loved wildlife and was an ardent fisherman as well as a cowboy. He owned ranches and loved ranching all of his life.
In 1970 he was appointed by Ronald Reagan to the Fish and Game Commission where he served for eight years, two as President. Being a lifelong conservationist and loving the outdoors, it was a job he adored. Tim will be deeply missed by a devoted and loving family and good friends who were so supportive and kind during his illness, and also by his horse. In Tim's own words, "No one had a better life." "Good-night sweet prince, And flights of angels sing thee to thy rest!"
